Seminario del Dr. Michalis Agoras de la Universidad de Tesalia (Grecia), titulado Homogenization Methods For Elasto-Viscoplastic Composites» – 18 de diciembre a las 12:00 hr en la Sala de Seminarios

ABSTRACT In this work, following Agoras et al. [1], we develop a homogenization procedure for particulate composites with elasto-viscoplastic constituents. By employing a standard time-discretization scheme for the local stress rate, we show that the associated time-incremental homogenization problem may
